Buehler’s Fresh Foods Offers Spring Coho Salmon All Year
Buehler’s Fresh Foods Seafood Department is pleased to offer customers Spring Coho Salmon twelve months out of the year. Once a seasonal product, the year round availability is attributed to breakthrough research and sustainable practices developed by nationally renowned partners, and spearheaded locally by Homestead Springs Farm in central Ohio.
Coho Salmon, typically found in northern Pacific waters, can be raised in the largest spring fed aqua culture farm in Ohio. With 1,000 to 2,000 gallons per minute generated from the natural spring, this pure clean water is perfect for raising Spring Coho Salmon. Due to revolutionary natural procedures, the salmon are convinced they are in the “smolt” cycle, thus eliminating the need for them to migrate to salt water.
This delicate tasting Spring Coho Salmon has no antibiotics, no hormones, and raised in pure spring drinking water. The Spring Coho Salmon diet is sustainable, as well, with a custom mixed to order feed of 40% vegetables (among the highest in the industry), and less than 28% fish bi-product and oil (among the lowest in the industry).
Because this is a local product raised on a family farm, Spring Coho Salmon is fresh – never frozen – to Buehler’s customers. The salmon can be in the water one day and in Buehler’s Seafood Department the next. You cannot get much fresher than that!
“We are fortunate to have Spring Coho Salmon in our backyard,” stated Dan Shanahan, President, and COO of Buehler’s Fresh Foods. “We think our customers will appreciate the natural farming methods and the sustainable qualities of this salmon.”
Buehler’s Fresh Foods is celebrating 86 years as a family-owned and operated supermarket. Industry peers and officials have given recent recognition to Buehler’s accomplishments by awarding: 2014 Retailer of the Year (Cleveland Food Dealer Association), Ohio Business Profile (Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State), Resolution – food and agriculture (John Kasich, Governor of Ohio), and Progressive Grocer Independent’s 2015 Outstanding Wow Award.
